Man City transfer news
According to the Daily Mail, Manuel Pellegrini is planning a move for the promising Belgian this winter, with a view to loaning him back to Anderlecht for the rest of this season.
City are prioritising moves for a new striker this January, but still remain keen on building for the future as they line up a move for Praet, as well as for Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.
With Yaya Toure perhaps unlikely to remain a regular or even stay at the Etihad Stadium beyond this season, new long-term additions in midfield could be useful for City.
